Protocol – sample collection for metagenomic studies

The samples can be simple or combined. A combined sample consists of 20 simple samples randomly collected in zig-zag, mixed together and homogenized. Remove any mantle of dead organic material and collect the samples from a depth of 0-20 cm. Obtain the coordinates of the spot where samples were collected with a GPS. Store the samples under 4oC degrees.
